The turnaround in the US Dollar is getting a lot of attention in the wake of Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s testimony to the House Financial Services Committee. Accordingly, traders have been giving a nod to EUR/USD for the change in direction. Yet given USD/JPY’s ongoing losses, there is a strong argument to be made that EUR/JPY may be more vulnerable to losses than its USD-pair counterpart. The same can be said for GBP/JPY with respect to GBP/USD.

The fact is, even in this rising rate environment, a drop in risk appetite – when global equity markets fall – has tended to favor the Japanese Yen over the US Dollar. Recent BOJ commentary regarding more easing (implicitly to combat Yen strength) has fallen on deaf ears; it will take more than verbal jousting to convince market participants that this risk unwind favoring the Yen is unsustainable.
